LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Lincoln police have arrested a man who they say escaped from officers after being handcuffed at an elementary school.

KOLN-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1yJgNtW ) the 32-year-old man was visiting his daughter at Prescott Elementary School when officers attempted to make the arrest. The man was wanted for questioning in a disturbance and a theft from earlier in the month.

Officers say he broke free while being escorted to the police car and they chased him on foot. They set up a perimeter and a K-9 unit later found the man hiding in an area garage.

He was cited for escape, criminal mischief and trespassing.
